California head men's basketball coach Cuonzo Martin has announced sophomore center Kameron Rooks sustained a tear of the anterior cruciate ligament in his left leg. Rooks underwent successful surgery to repair the ligament and will miss an indefinite period of time while he begins his rehabilitation program.
"Kameron has worked hard this off season to return from a previous foot injury and it is very unfortunate to have a setback like this," Martin said. "Kameron's surgery went well and now he can continue to work diligently through his rehabilitation program to gain strength back in his leg. It is difficult to predict when we can expect him back, but we know he will put in the effort and his coaches and teammates are here to support him every step of the way."
The 7-footer played in all but two of Cal's first 28 games during his freshman season in 2013-14, missing the Bears' final seven contests after sustaining a stress reaction in his left foot. He averaged 1.6 rebounds and 1.3 points in 7.0 minutes per game. Rooks totaled 20 points and 17 rebounds in 83 minutes over his last 11 games.
